Two simultaneous car-bomb explosions Wednesday rocked the neighborhood of Baghdad's holiest Shi'ite Muslim shrine, killing at least seven people and wounding 25 others, police reported.

The second explosion, also from an unoccupied vehicle, occurred at the Aden intersection, at the western entrance to the Kazimiyah neighborhood.
